Now that an arrest has been made in the case involving the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Mo. on March 12, let’s take a quick look back at the language Attorney General Eric Holder used to describe the shooter right after the attack occurred:

“A damn punk.”

Which leads us to this one great question for Holder from Sheriff of Milwaukee County and Twitchy favorite David Clarke, Jr:

Ha! It’s a lot easier to call an unknown assailant a “damn punk” when it’s not an African-American who has been identified by cops as one of the Ferguson protesters.

More from Sheriff Clarke:

Probably.
